The Christmas Truce: A Concert for Peace
The concert is a commemoration of the 1914 Christmas Truce on the Western Front, when British and German soldiers exchanged seasonal greetings and sung Christmas carols together. To celebrate that event, the fundraising concert for peace will bring together on stage Radio Days Music, The Bloomsbury Choir, community volunteers from Richmond, and special guests – teachers from the German School London. Songs from the Great War years, interleaved with little known stories, will capture the spirit of the era, telling the story of the rush to war and of the war resisters. The finale of the concert will be a candlelit performance “Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht”.
Venue: Old Town Hall, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond upon Thames, TW9 1TP
Date: 12th December 2014, 7.30 pm
Concessions Available: Students, Unemployed, Senior Citizens, Children
